Irumbu kottai Murattu Singam-A tamil cowboy movie:)

The story in a nutshell follows the typical cowboy film formula popularised by legends like actor John Wayne and director Sergio Leone’s “spaghetti westerns”- guns, girls, horses, exotic wild outdoors and the final shoot out between the good guys and the bad guys. 
Actor Lawrence who is the murattu singam in the movie has revealed his acting talent with a touch of hilarious expressions and great tricks like the way he handles the gun, the cigar etc.
Here are few things which makes the movie a must watch:
It is 1 of the brilliant movies I have ever seen in Tamil.
It is too hilarious,especially the shadow moving much slower to his actions(graphics is good) and a tribal translator who translates everything including the actions and sentiments(overpowering the main speaker itself)...
They have copied many things from many movies(ideas, music...many more things) but still it won't affect the viewers much...
They go for a treasure hunt and find a dust covered ID of Dr.Jones from Hamilton university(ya Indiana Jones) there.
They try almost every possible way(pictured in Indiana Jones series) and fail. When everyone gets tired trying and sit on the stools there the door opens,this scene is very comic....
There are many many more funny scenes and witty dialogues...
It has good mixing of comedy with action, laced with one-liners, slapstick humor, sentiments, and songs.
I refer you to watch this movie....

My favorite author

Dan Brown (born June 22, 1964) is an American author of thriller fiction, best known for the 2003 bestselling novel, The Da Vinci Code. Brown’s novels feature the recurring themes of cryptography, keys, symbols and codes, and have been translated into 51 languages.

Brown’s novels that feature the lead character Robert Langdon also include historical themes and Christianity as recurring motifs, and as a result, have generated controversy. Brown states on his website http://www.danbrown.com/#/home
 that his books are not anti-Christian, as he is a Christian himself, and says of his book The Da Vinci Code that it is simply “an entertaining story that promotes spiritual discussion and debate” and suggests that the book may be used “as a positive catalyst for introspection and exploration of our faith”.
According to me he has named the lead character as Langdon because of the artist

'John Langdon' without whom the ambigrams would have been impossible.

And here are few similarities in all of his books:
Each novel begins with a murder.
There will be very few and necessary characters in the novel.
The lead character will have some expertise in the field which helps in solving the mystery behind the murder.
He'l get a call when he's asleep, to go somewhere.
There'l be a lady related to the victim.
And the best part, all stories happen in one single day.

The one more best part about his books is 'all the description related to art, architecture, technology, weapons in the novel are real'. 

Wishing him a very happy birthday. 
Hope we get to read him a lot in the future.

Movie starts in 1980 period when a group of friends celebrate their fare well party. These friends promise each other to keep in touch even after decades of separation. One among the group is Hanumantha Rao (Tamil actor Prabhu) who has a son Prabha and the other in the group is Vishwanath (Ahuthi Prasad) who has a daughter Nandini. To reach their professional goals Vishwanath and his daughter travel to Switzerland while Hanumantha Rao becomes a criminal lawyer to settle down in India and thus Prabha and Nandini gets separated in their childhood.
Years after their separation these old friends call for a re union and grown up Prabha (Prabhas) is eager to see his love Nandini (Kajal Agarwal). But, another girl Nisha (Shradhdha Das) daughter of goon (Mukesh Rishi) attempts for a suicide when Prabha doesn’t accept her love.

Next comes the best part of the movie. I don’t want to ruin your suspense. Lots of twists and turns happen. Overall the movie is good and watchable. You won’t feel bored to watch Prabhas or Kajal.

Picturization of Hyderabad tourist spots (Charminar, Golconda Fort, Tank Bund, Budhdha Statue) in Switzerland snow style was one of the best parts to show Karunakaran’s style of working.

Don’t miss the climax ‘supposed to be action scene’. It’s hilarious. You can’t stop laughing.
